Tie several windows to one tracker.

Is this possible in Resolve 8 or 9?

I am doing a brightness adjustment on 2 eyes.. I'm having to track each one.. while if I tracked a single one, and tied the other window to the other eyes tracker and just moved it into place it could save tracking time on a long shot?

Copy and paste the one eye node?

I cant copy and paste nodes.. how would you do that other than grabbing a still, then applying that single node? (time consuming)

you should be able to copy/paste nodes with either cmd+c/cmd+v or strg+c/strg+v!

works since version 8 something...

It would be awesome if each node had a tracker input and output connector in the node graph and be able to connect a node with tracking information out to mutible other nodes.

That would be great feature! New tracking interface is good, also tracking methods are better, but usability of data could be better, smart object/shape tracking of tracing clouds are something lot's of software can do this days. In between bat tracking data hand animating and compensating errors are the tools that make tracking software even better. Resolve cold be better in that, combining keyframes and tracking data together sometimes can be very stressful.

What I would really appreciate is hierarchical nesting - the traditional parent > child model for animation. That way you'd track one window, and any 'children' of that window would follow suit. Re-piping curves and such would be nice too, but this would be the simplest way, imho, and would involve potentially less mouse-clicks and GUI.

Rick
You can copy/paste attributes, try to cmd C, Option S or K, cmd V.

Resolve doesn't allow pasting single attributes, like Lustre, Baselight or FilmMaster. It's either all or nothing in the node. Also, you can't copy and paste tracking info, like Baselight or tracking info assignment, like Lustre. Had been asking for it for a long time.
I also would like to see tracking, that is capable of deforming. Just like in FilmMaster:-) For example, you can had draw shape around the face and even, if face turns sideways, tracker automatically deforms to conform to a different shape.
But right now, I'll settle for simple copy and paste:-)

This is something that I've been hoping for for a while. In Lustre you're able to track an area once and apply the tracking information to multiple masks. This functionality in conjunction with an improved keyframe editor would really elevate the usability of Resolve.

What's stopping you from tracking an area and then just moving the window? For multiple windows just copy the original track node/window and adjust for the new use/node as necessary.

you're right, that works as a work around, but that doesn't compare to a proper solution. All I'm saying is that there's room for improvement.

Hey Jake I didn't say that you could select attributes but I agree with you for more options. I was just helping Rick getting there. Copy/paste "all" attributes to another node.

I understand Bob.
You could also paste the whole node and then manually one by one remove unneeded attributes.
Anything is doable, if time is not an object. Unfortunately, on something like commercial work, time is very valuable and clients will not stand for much time waste. So, when clients used to asking to do certain things and now all of a sudden colorist starts pushing and clicking buttons, without much to show, that expensive client may start looking elsewhere to get things done faster...
How about pasting a simple attribute to a single or multiple event? Sorry, can't do it...
How about pasting a simple node to a more than one event? Sorry, can't do it, unless first you add all those events into a new group. But even that comes with a caveat. If all your nodes in all those events are the same, then the answer finally is yes, but if even one event's node structure is different, then all grades in those events will get re-set.
